Where to look for rooms to let in London

Looking for rooms to let in London can be a tough encounter, knowing that there is over 8 million people living in the area. The city offers over 620 square miles of unique and varied places to live, so the good news is that the rooms to let choices are endless.

Now there are many areas to look from, let’s talk about the North of the city which encompasses the gritty styles and authentic taste in Afro/Caribbean cuisine in places like Tottenham. You could spend a whole weekend wandering around Camden Lock Market without running out of things to see, buy or eat.

Shall we ask about the rooms to let matches?

Well to start it’s no way near as expensive as central London, although according to the widely circulated survey by Thrillist, it will cost you around £1,476 per month to rent in Camden Town or £1,528 for a chalk farm abode. The further you go into North things get cheaper. The cheapest being Enfield, with rental around Oakwood Tube station area cited as an altogether more affordable £864 a month, this could be a good market area to let to.


Transport for rooms to let around North London?

North London is well served by London’s Northern line that forks off at Camden towards both Edgware and High Barnet while also providing great service down into Central and South London. Also note that, North London is crisscrossed by the London Overground which can take you to east or west quite quickly.


What are the average salaries like there, you ask?

In the recent best places in the UK to make a living survey conducted by Total Money (via the independent), London charted at number 26 out of 64. London’s median monthly take-home salary is £2,190 against an average monthly mortgage repayment of £2,381. The most famous company offering jobs in North London is global fast-food giant McDonald’s, it runs its UK operations from East Finchley HQ. And it isn’t alone in setting up corporate offices in North London. Joining McDonald’s are fashion houses Ted Baker and Jacques vert leading high-street sushi and Private Car Company Addison lee.


To finish off North London gives you the beauty of Regents Park and primrose Hill offering one of the most breath-taking view of London for no cost at all. And you know what they say ‘the best things in life comes free.’
